One of the things that needs to be properly checked and maintained on your travel trailer is the tires. The condition and type of tires that you have on your rig can impact the way that your RV works and moves. If your tires are worn out or show signs of aging, then it is time to replace them. If you keep putting off getting those new tires, then you are putting yourself at risk for an accident, and you may actually be spending more money on the road. Keeping your tires at the correct pressure and checking on their condition can go a long way in making you a happier RVer.
Whenever you stop to fuel up your RV, you should always check the pressure. If you are driving on under inflated tires, then you are not only wearing your tires out faster, but you are also losing fuel efficiency. You may also face issues with how your RV handles, and may face the risk of a blow out. You should always keep an eye on your tires for any issues concerning air pressure and tread wear.
When you do notice that it is time for you to get new tires, it is easy to simply get the same type that were on your rig before. Before you just tell the guy at the shop to throw on another pair of the same tires, you should instead make sure that your tires are designed to carry the weight of your rig. If you are a full timer or carry a lot of things with you, you may be overloading your tires which can lead to big problems down the road. Before you have new tires installed, have your RV weighed with everything in it to choose a tire that is correct for what you are hauling.
Be sure to take care of the tires on your new RV. If you do, they will take you far.
